Juices are concentrated nutritional elixirs. Incorporating juices into your diet encompasses a vast smorgasbord of tastes and flavors. There is something for everyone. Imagine eating a meal of spinach, parsley, sprouts, tomatoes, lemon, celery, radishes, green pepper and cucumber. Ordinarily, considering the woeful state of America’s digestion, we would be lucky to digest half of it. But once you separate the cellulose from the liquid portion of these vital foods, even those with weak digestion, will be able to absorb and assimilate its maximum food value. The beauty of properly extracted and filtered juice, is that it demands little to no digestive effort from the stomach. This condensing of pounds of valuable foods into a single glass while simultaneously maximizing assimilation is what makes drinking juices special. One pound of carrots, for example, makes 10 ounces of carrot juice. Even the most frail could easily drink that in a minute. But who can consume a pound of carrots? Yet the enzymes, water soluble vitamins, minerals and trace elements in those carrots are condensed into a glass of fresh squeezed carrot juice.
